Manny Pacquiao defends his WBO title tonight against Jeff Horn.
Tonight at 9 pm ET on ESPN, Manny Pacquiao returns to the ring in Brisbane, Australia, hitting the road to take on home hero Jeff Horn, with Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight title on the line.
We’ll have live coverage for the card, with Wil Esco on the round by round call.
Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO) is the heavy favorite in the fight, and to some, the only real question is whether or not he’ll score his first stoppage win since 2009. Horn (16-0-1, 11 KO) is a former Olympian, but totally untested not just on this level, but the level (maybe two or three) below this, too.
The undercard will feature a second world title fight, as Jerwin Ancajas (26-1-1, 17 KO) defends the IBF super flyweight title against Teiru Kinoshita (25-1-1, 8 KO). Ancajas is an even bigger betting favorite than Pacquiao.
The ESPN broadcast will also feature Shane Mosley Jr (10-1, 7 KO) taking on David Toussaint (10-0, 8 KO), and Michael Conlan (2-0, 2 KO) facing Jarrett Owen (5-4-3, 2 KO).
